Google Maps Live Transit
GOOGLE has just announced that you will be able to tell when your bus is going to be late. This new service is going to be built right into Google Maps. Before, you could only view transit stations nearby. So starting now, Google Maps for mobile and desktop can tell you when your ride is actually going to arrive with new live transit updates. We partnered with transit agencies to integrate live transit data in four U.S. cities and two European cities: Boston, Portland, Ore., San Diego, San Francisco, Madrid and Turin.
When you click on a transit station or plan a transit route with Google Maps and there are delays or alerts related to your trip, you’ll now see “live departure times” (indicated with a special icon) and service alerts.
